Cerrito’s career hit full throttle when international ‘cuchi cuchi’ diva Charo caught his show in Las Vegas and hired him on the spot to hit the road as part of her tour, which led to be profiled in People magazine when he sold out 200 consecutive shows in Hawaii at Charo’s restaurant and theater. His combination of Latin flare and a traditional country vibe creates a unique offering that is attracting a wide range of fans noting his diverse and distinctive music.
“I am so excited for this day to come,” said Cerrito. “I remember starting out with Charo in Las Vegas and appearing on The Love Boat in the 80’s. Then I met Fran Boyd at the Academy of Country Music and she took me in and introduced me to so many people that led me to recording so many wonderful songs with these great ladies in country music. I can’t believe how far in the world my music has reached people. I hear from people in Honduras, Brazil, Japan, Australia, Europe, South Africa and so many more places. Now they will be able to hear all my music in one place.”

CDX was founded in 1991 by late Country Music Hall of Fame Broadcaster Charlie Douglas and national record promotion veteran Paul Lovelace as a delivery system for labels and artists to supply their upcoming singles to all full-time US country stations, satellite providers, syndicators, and programming consultants. In 1991, CDX clients’ music was distributed via the then new medium of CD. Today, our clients’ singles are digitally distributed via InstaTrack e-blast, integration into our smart phone app, and also included on our regular CD compilation disc. CDX also expanded by creating CDX TRACTION which is an airplay monitoring and tracking software system. CDX TRACTION monitors radio stations through the online web stream of their broadcast signal. It utilizes a proprietary and patented music recognition system to log every song played. CDX now offers distribution in all music formats.
